Dear colleagues in the arts community,

I am writing you today with some important updates on the Canada Council’s portal.

We know many of you are eager to submit your grant applications online. Our intention was to offer that possibility this month. We will, unfortunately, have to delay this launch due to technical issues uncovered in recent testing. We recognize the negative impact of launching a technological solution that would not respond to the needs of the users.

TAC has 2 full-time Grants Officer positions available:

Grants Officer – Community Arts programs

Grants Officer – Dance and Literary Arts programs

The winners of the 2017 K.M. Hunter Artist Awards were announced today.

Dance Ontario's Creative Partnership Program will provide $2,000 in production/creation support to each of two choreographers for NEW work to be premiered at DanceWeekend'18 next January. Choreographers whose membership is current at the time of submission are eligible to apply.

All forms of dance will be considered and two works each approximately 15 minutes in length will be selected.

We are sad to hear that the Board of Directors and the Founder of the Canadian Society for Dance Studies/La Société canadienne d’études en danse have voted to dissolve the organization.
Our sincere thanks to Amy Bowring for her tireless work.

As you may know The London Dance Festival has undergone a metamorphosis since our last summer festival. They have been diligently working to create a new, more exciting, and community focused dance experience. In this rejuvenation they have incorporated as a non-profit and are going through a re-branding process.You are invited to go with them on their new adventure and participate in year-round dance initiatives for all Londoners.
